SCHOOL BUS PROGRAM
Colac Secondary College administers the School Bus Program for Colac Network Schools on behalf of Public Transport Victoria.
The Student Transport Unit of the Department of Education and Training sets the School Bus Program Policy and provides general transport advice to schools.
Categories of eligibility determine whether a student travels at no cost or travels upon the payment of a fare. Students wishing to access a seat on a bus must complete an application form and parents / guardians must agree to the conditions of travel including, if applicable, the payment of a fare.
To be eligible for a seat on a bus at no cost a student must:
Attend their closest government or non-government school
Reside 4.8km or more from the school
Government and non-government students not attending their closest appropriate school are required to pay a set fare. For 2021 the fare has been set at $120 per term per child (a term payment is required upfront).
TOWN BUS TRAVEL
For students requiring bus access within Colac, Christian’s Bus Co provides this service.
